The most entertaining games for your Android smartphone

As an entertainment option, smartphone gaming is right up there with some of the other modern-day choices people tend to make. Now Spotify has finally entered the Kenyan market. That too is another common choice, as well as streaming movies or watching soccer on television. Gaming on a mobile phone has certainly risen to prominence, though, especially when you factor in the improved games and the more powerful smartphone devices we have access to in the modern-day.

As a result of the seemingly never-ending innovation in the smartphone space overall, smartphone gaming’s offering has never been so attractive. As such, when you assess the sheer amount of games available in the Google Play store, it is quite remarkable. From MOBAs like Arena of Valor to trading card games such as Hearthstone, the options are comprehensive. This accompanies titles offering an augmented reality experience like Pokemon Go and and casino sites offering popular slot games like Bonanza Megaways, which offers up to 117,649 ways to win in every spin. We have barely touched the surface there, either. One search online and in the Google Play store will highlight that.

As a result of the extensive selection of smartphone games now available on Android devices, it can be hard to narrow it down to the very best. Ultimately, smartphone gaming options have become somewhat overloaded. In order to help you establish which games are worth your time, here is a look at some of the best titles for smartphone gamers in Kenya right now.

One of the biggest PC games ever is now on mobile 

There has been a growing trend of console-quality titles making the jump over to smartphone devices. With the aforementioned innovation in our smartphone devices bringing more power and sophistication with it, games developers have been able to up the ante accordingly. A perfect example of this is Minecraft. A game that involves crafting millions of blocks as you explore infinite worlds and build whatever you want, it can be easy to find yourself being totally engrossed in this particular release. You can also craft weapons and find armour to protect yourself against any enemies, alongside a whole host of other things.

Anyone for a game of billiards?

One of the biggest games in the country at the moment is Shooting Ball. A simple but fun game, it is essentially vertical billiards in a single-player game mode. The graphics are decent, with a solid 3D effect, and there are more than 1000 levels to get through, which will most definitely keep you entertained for hours on end.

A truly brilliant racing car game

Racing car games have always been popular on mobile. Not only are they entertaining, but they’re generally compatible with mobile gameplay. A great example of this is with Mini Car Race Legends, an enjoyable title where players race with tiny cartoon style cars and turbo-boost their way to the very top of the pile.

The most popular puzzle game of the year so far

Candy Crush Saga is the latest instalment from one of the most iconic and loved puzzle games in the modern era. If you enjoy solving puzzles in a quick time and like the idea of being rewarded with rainbow-coloured cascades and tasty candy combos, then it’s a game for you. Players ultimately have to match three or more candies in a row. It sounds easy enough, but rest assured, you’ll be stuck on this one at certain points.

Other great options include PUBG Mobile, eFootball PES 2021, Bloons TD 6, Stardew Valley, Football Manager 2021 Mobile, Word Shatter, Temple Run, and Roblox.
